Why Does Barack Obama Want To Eliminate All Defense Spending By Increasing Defense Spending?
JESUS CHRIST Republicans get away with everything when it comes to Warring, hmm? Barack Obama and Bob Gates raised defense spending by 4%, or $20 billion, for the new budget, but made cuts to missile defense programs -- that would exist only so Sarah Palin could pretend that she's shooting down Putin's flying dick from outer space -- and killed $140 billion in F-22 RAPTOR DEATH PLANE contractor looting schemes. The "new money" will be focused on Iraq and Afghanistan. And yet this has all been parlayed rather easily, on the teevee, into, "Why is Barack Obama not giving the Pentagon a single dollar, and why does he want to lose more wars?" [Washington Monthly, TPM]
